Rina Sawayama strikes a pose for Porter magazine’s June 13th, 2022 cover. Photographed by Jon Ervin, she wears a Magda Butrym dress, paired with Gucci sunglasses, a Lauren Rubinski necklace, Spinelli Kilcollin rings and Maria Tash earrings on the cover.
For the cover story named ‘’Owning It’’, stylist Natasha Royt dresses the Japanese-British singer/songwriter in designs from labels such as A.W.A.K.E. Mode, Maison Margiela, Gauge81, Magda Butrym, Mônot, Loewe, Bottega Veneta and Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello.
In the interview with Emma Hope Allwood, Sawayama talks about the power of authenticity, reclaiming the narrative, and tackling “othering” within the industry.
